Counterfeiting is one of the fastest growing economic crimes worldwide. It threatens the economies of developed and developing countries alike, damages new investment, and increasingly endangers public health and safety.
Technological advances mean counterfeiters have become more sophisticated. Today, a huge range of items are counterfeited, from clothing and pharmaceuticals to car parts and agrochemicals.
The Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau (CIB) was formed in 1985 as a specialised bureau within ICC Commercial Crime Services.
Our aim is to protect the industry from the damage caused by counterfeiting by;
- Gathering intelligence
- Carrying out covert investigations
- Providing expert advice and training
CIB is a not for profit membership organisation. Our worldwide members include:
- Large multinational companies
- Trade associations
- Law firms
- Technology producers
- Investigative firms
CIB is non-political and provides practical prevention and enforcement support for businesses, police and customs authorities. This is a valuable tool in the fight against the production and distribution of counterfeit goods.
